Wednesday. June 2nd, 2010.
I know it has been a while since I updated the daily log. It has been crazy and the heat I think is making blog lazy.
A lot of my B-Roll footage turned out to be extremely unsteady as it turns out. I was really disappointed because I spent so much time filming and it seems like I will have to go back to get some more of the house details. Oh well. It was my first time filming, though, so I can’t be too hard on myself.
I have been spending a great deal of time with Anthony Pisano – interviewing him; filming in his home. He has given me great access, which I so appreciate because it makes my job as the reporter that much easier.
However, I am trying hard to get an interview with Anthony Pisano Jr. (Pisano’s son) but Jr. has not wanted to meet with me. His father said something about him not feeling comfortable with the situation. I don’t know why he would, seeing as he has never met me, but sometimes people hear “reporter” or “journalist” and they freak out, or get on the defensive. But not all journalists have bad intentions. I just want to tell Anthony’s story.
All I do know is that if Anthony Jr. meets me and sees the person who has been spending all this time with his father, he will know I have no bad intentions and hopefully he will share some thoughts with me about his father.
Will keep you guys posted.
